on the north so ties are currently strained between these 2 countries. it's been less than 6 months since his handshake kim jong un has visited china north korea's closest foreign ally many times over the years. she jinping on the other hand is the 1st chinese leader to travel to pyongyang and well over a decade. we are ready to work with the d.p. r. k. to continue to carry forward the fine tradition of china d p r k friendship and promote the continuous development of exchanges and cooperation between the 2 countries in various fields. relations between the 2 authoritarian countries have been strained since north korea began amping up its nuclear weapons test i beijing supports denuclearization of the korean peninsula and recently backed the raft of international sanctions against. these talks aimed to relieve tensions.
the u.s. will be watching closely a summit between kim and u.s. president donald trump in february broke off without an agreement even to south korea said it is hoping talks between she and kim will move things forward opening up the chance of renewed negotiations on the north's nuclear program. a lot to talk about there in let's go to the region now i'm joined by david is. in seoul good morning fabienne can you tell us what kind of message are the 2 leaders hoping to send with this me. well the message is definitely a very harmonious one both countries are really putting a lot of emphasis on their friendship which is actually quite complicated you mentioned that it's really an ambivalent and complicated relation but really they try to be very harmonious for example both well this is the korea north korea north korea china friendship tower and also celebrating historic ties both were fighting in the korean war which started 66 years ago and both sides need each other and
china needs north korea because it wants debility in the regions and of course north korea needs china because it's the economic lifeline of the country and without china they basically could not survive far beyond this meeting comes just ahead of the g. 20 summit now how is that factoring in to this visit yet not i would say the timing is really crucial and i would really say that this summit is also a signal from xi jinping to would trump because trump needs china to pick his strategy of maximum pressure of keeping the sanctions if china wanted to it could easily open up the border and start economic cooperation again with north korea and then counter that strategy but of course china and china stephanie very worried about the u.s. trade or and and the china will use that as a leverage in discussing trade well with trump and they will meet soon at the g.
20 summit in japan ok you mentioned the sanctions against north korea from china so that makes this a very important meeting for. yeah actually this also like a practical outcome that north korea expects from the summit and that is food delivery food aid because north korea had a really bad harvest the worst in a decade and 10000000 people depend on foreign aid but of course the bigger picture is that kim jong un needs the diplomatic back up and by china it once china to not be involved in for the i'm strategy of the nuclear right nuclear is ation on the terms basically saying that they have a step by step approach not not the big deal the trump expects but rather you know getting concession step by step and of course they hope that china for that and also will support them ok a lot of stake for both sides then fabienne thanks very much for that update let's preview now on some of the other stories making news

column are said there was quote credible evidence of been solomon's liability she was last seen at the saudi consulate in istanbul aren't over 2nd he'd gone there to receive official papers ahead of his planned wedding his body was dismembered inside the consulate it's thought while he was still alive the remains were been removed from the building and have get to be found. i guess calmar joins us now she's the u.n. special rapid to her on extrajudicial executions who issued that report thanks so much for joining us today how did you reach the conclusion that there is quote credible evidence that saudi authorities were involved into shock she is death. so the 1st important finding of my inquiry ease about the responsibilities of the state of saudi arabia until now the saudi authorities i've insisted that this was
not a state sanctioned crime but a rogue or perish and what my report shows is that the killing of mr cashel you meet all of the crime yet here you are for a state crime it was conducted in done by state official who said it used it create law and upon state means and state resources the teen that came into. used a private shed we use diplomatic clearance the killing took place in the saudi consulate the saudi console in said took action so that there were no witnesses on the day that the time of the killing these and other if you don't present to the in the report mean that there is no other conclusions but that the killing was what we call a state killing if there was
a state killing done by state officials as your report found would state resources does that mean that the crown prince been solomon is responsible or liable for the killing of. so my investigation is a human rights investigation focusing heavily on the responsibilities of the state in that context i have can see that individual. only to identify whether or not there was in my opinion sufficient credible evidence mandating an international criminal investigation ok where should this criminal investigation take place what should the jurisdiction be. so my my recommendation is that the international criminal investigation be conducted at the level of the united nation i call upon the secretary general to appoint
a panel of experts that will look into individual liabilities owned a basis of the evidence agnes column our special u.n. repertoire on extrajudicial executions thank you so very much for your time today with us. or european union leaders are meeting today to discuss the candidates for the role of president of the e.u. commission it is the block's top job but the east 2 leading nations france and germany are at odds right now over who should get it we'll hear more from brussels in a moment 1st let's take a look at who is in the running for the job. they are lining up for the top jump in brussels and it's anything but child's play who will make the race right now 3 candidates are in the running to become the next president of the european commission the e.u.'s high stop one of our denis politician might have a divest aga she positioned herself as the liberal front runner and would be the
1st woman to serve as president of the european commission vest on made a name for herself as a fierce competition commission are responsible for slapping google with a huge and to trust fine she enjoys the support of several heads of states but she might be putting the cart before the horse because not everybody in her own party is backing her the dutchman and social democrat plans to moments has strong support in the south of europe but his problem is the east as my is president of the european commission funds to my months as an experienced politician who speaks 9 languages but some eastern european nations above all hungary and poland oppose him timmons had openly criticized both countries for flouting democratic values and last but not least the germany's months played his advantage eastern europe life him a lot more than his social democrat opponent for some months would be about doesn't have enough political experience to become commission president
a candidate must receive $21.00 of the blocks 28 votes veba is still far from that goal was really making this race so difficult france and germany disagree about who should get the job the french president even when my column doesn't want to be limited to the 3 candidates putting him at odds with the german chancellor and. american if the 2 conduct 3 the carousel could change direction and a dark horse candidate could enter the race. earlier i asked our brussels correspondent gary masse this to tell us more about the use powerful top job and why it's become so contentious bryan you always have a tug of war when it comes to the top job in the european commission for a number of reasons really because everything comes into play here over tonight's dinner when e.u. leaders will make that 1st step towards finding a new hat for the european commission and it's partly it's about party politics it
is about the weight of countries in the european union will be a french president for the european commission will to be a german candidate who makes it into that top job and then finally there's also the personal considerations is that person qualified so all of this coming into play for this powerful job having said powerful yes the european commission is the only institution that can start a legislation broad says so that can make laws in the european union but at the end of the day it is member states and it's the european parliament that always needs to approve such legislation so the member states on the driving seat and that is why they have to work this one out. they're talking to me earlier we have some sports now and as to the women's world cup in england japan progressing to the last 16 the 2 teams played each other and their final match to decide 1st and 2nd place in group d. the goals are all in white made all the difference in a dominant display by the english. a link up between manchester city's georgia
